Christine Gilliam, M.D.
Otolaryngologist in San Antonio, TX
Everyone's ENT & Sinus Center
"At Everyone's ENT & Sinus Center, I take pride in making sure every patient gets top quality care from the time they enter the office and even after checking out. Doing what's right for the patient and the joy of helping them combined with the art, science, & challenge of otolaryngology is why I love being Everyone's ENT."
I was born in Weslaco, Texas and raised in South and Central Texas. For college, I attended Texas Tech University in Lubbock, where I graduated magna cum laude along with honors in biology. After receiving my Bachelor of Science in Biology, I went on to medical school at the University of Texas Medical School at San Antonio.
While in medical school I was inducted into AOA, the International Medical Honor Society. Then it was on to my internship in general surgery and residency in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at The University of Missouri Hospitals and Clinics. During my residency training, I had the privilege to train under some of the top otolaryngologists in the country and present groundbreaking research at international meetings. Though Missouri was nice, I was excited to return home to Texas to start my practice and raise my family.
I am pretty biased but I feel otolaryngology is the most interesting surgical specialty. It allows me to have a close relationship with my patients while performing a variety of interesting surgeries. I have great patients that I can help in a profound manner. I help my patients from curing head and neck cancer, to preventing debilitating sinus problems, or treating lifelong allergies. Additionally, I enjoy helping a little child and his/her parents sleep better at night by placing tubes in the child's ears to prevent ear infections or correct hearing problems.
I also get to let my more artistic side come out while performing rhinoplasty on someone that is unhappy with the appearance of his/her nose. Of course, I feel my area of specialty is the best, and for me it is.
Hopefully, my joy of otolaryngology in combination with expert training, gives my patients the comfort of feeling I am the best doctor for them.
